The stallion book is full this year, but the winners continue apace for Woodside’s Written Tycoon.
His latest city winning juvenile was Miss Kindilan at Eagle Farm on Saturday in the Singapore Airlines 2yo Fillies Plate (1200m).
Bookmakers who underestimated were burned when the Written Tycoon filly landed a plunge. Some corporates bet as much as $51 on Wednesday and she was no better than $8.50 when the field jumped
Trainer Barry Lockwood said Miss Kindilan was coming off a nightmare first-up outing at the Gold Coast.
“Everything that could go wrong did go wrong,” he said.
“We put blinkers on and took the tongue tie off and it seemed to do the trick in her work through the week.
Miss Kindilan is the 10th individual juvenile winner by Woodside Park’s champion sire in Australia this season. He has also sired Group 1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes winner Luna Rossa in New Zealand.
Written Tycoon’s Aussie contingent have won a total of 19 races for earnings of $4,196,931 putting him well and truly at the No.1 rank in the Australian 2yo Sires Premiership.
As an historical guide, only super star sires Redoute’s Choice, Exceed and Excel and More Than Ready have ever had their progeny collect more than $4 million in 2yo seasonal earnings.
Woodside Park auctioned the fifth and final on-line nomination to Written Tycoon through bloodstock.com.au last week and it was purchased by Iranian-based agent Hamid Nikoumanesh for $53,500. The other successful bidders over the past five weekswere Neil Jenkinson ($56,500), Nicole Ernest ($60,000), Michael Hadley ($60,500) and Angela Haynes ($59,500).
